Sarah Palin was one of the many high-profile politicians that defended Phil Robertson after his alleged anti-gay remarks, he made during an interview with GQ magazine. Palin even took to her personal Facebook profile to talk about the “quacks at A&E, and the “intolerants hatin” on Duck Dynasty.” The only problem with Palin’s defense is, that she never even read the comments made by Robertson.

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus,” Phil was quoted as saying. “That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he continued. “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

When asked if Palin thought that Robertson’s choice of words were offensive, she responded: “I haven’t read the article. I don’t know exactly how he said it.” Despite not having read the article, Palin immediately took to Robertson’s defense on Facebook, and even appeared on Sean Hannity’s television show to discuss the patriarch of the Robertson family. Her complete Facebook post read: “Free speech is an endangered species. Those “intolerants” hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.” Duck Dynasty fans have “liked” the comment 428,784 times, shared it 63,548 times, and left nearly 25,000 comments on her post.

Palin’s daughter Bristol Palin soon followed in her mother’s footsteps, and took to her Facebook page to post on behalf of Robertson as well. “I support Phil Robertson and his right to express his faith and his beliefs,” her post read, along with a picture of Robertson.

Bristol also posted a blog on Patheos titled, Leave Phil Robertson Alone! Her post read:

Everyone needs to leave Phil Robertson alone for expressing his beliefs. I think it’s so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style. This flies in the face of what makes America great – people can have their own beliefs and own opinions and their own ways of life. Everyone needs to treat others like God would, with love. It goes both ways.
I hate how the LGBT community says it’s all about “love” and “equality.” However, if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others’ opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn’t support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic. They take the easy way out every time anyone speaks out about their beliefs on the Bible. If I were Duck Dynasty, I would take my show to another channel. So much disrespect.

  • Of Course!

    All politicians are phony! Don’t people get this yet? They comment on things they don’t even know about and never experienced!! They are elected liars —- after all, how many campaign promises actually are kept —- very few.

    I am straight and a Christian and I am here to tell you that there are many hypocritical Christians and Americans. Many Christians just memorize bible verses and judge others. They do absolutely nothing that Christ tells them to do. If they did, we would not be the country that incarcerates the most people in the world and also makes billions off those very same people. Every day in this nation, we incarcerate and destroy lives for victimless crimes. There are people suffering greatly in our nations prisons and they committed crimes that literally do not have victims. So in essence, we are creating suffering and lots of it. Heck, the Bible Belt is the worst part of the country for this. Doubt what I say? Go there are see.

    Bristol Palin is a privileged, spoiled brat that is not very intelligent and her only claim to fame is she is cute, has big tits, and is a single mom. If it wasn’t for her mom, we would not even know who she was. Leave gay people alone. Their choices are their choices. The funny thing about Christ is that he is right about it all. All of it and every person on this planet will know this before they die. We should make it easier for people to come to Christ and not make them feel alienated. The reality is this as well — many Christians are going to find out that they may not be as “saved” as they think — and before it is all over, they too will need mercy extended to them. Heck, the rapture is even a made up concept that started in the 20th century, so all this talk of being saved for the rapture is baloney. You won’t even find the word rapture in the bible.

    Please spare me the very SELECTIVE morality in this nation. Go to a prison. See the suffering. See the number of innocent people there. Then talk to me about morality. Forgive. Show mercy. Love. Do not judge. Do not plot wicked schemes. Show compassion. Don’t kill. Christ said all of this and America does very little of it.

    Americans preach but they never DO.

      Gov. Palin is right.
      A&E needs ‘Duck Dynasty’ more than ‘Duck Dynasty’ needs A&E.

      To democrats/liberals/Gay people:
      tolerance/diversity is a 2-way street.

      Gov. Palin, ‘Duck Dynasty’, and We the People are WINNING.
      Democrats/liberals are LOSING and PISSED.

      About reading GQ magazine:
      We the People D.R., D.C. (don’t read, don’t care) about LIBERAL
      newspapers/magazines.

      We the People know who you democrats/liberals people are.
      You democrats/liberals people and ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama are
      trying to transform America into some STUPID SOCIALIST European utopia.

    • Quincy Adams

      So let me get this straight.
      If a cop lies/cheats/steals, then that cop goes to JAIL or
      gets FIRED.
      If ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama and other politicians in U.S. Congress
      lie/cheat/steal, then those CROOKS get a pay raise and other
      benefits.

      Am I living in a TWILIGHT zone?

    Anyone who thinks he was being judgmental didn’t read the whole GQ interview, especially the ending part. Only certain ‘talking points’ were picked out. I didn’t hear a word he said about Not judging people and loving everybody no matter what. It’s There In the GQ article though. Not one channel I’ve listened to or article I’ve found told the whole truth. Why all this? What is being covered up as this goes on and on and it’s not true, As Is Usual!

      Oops…it didn’t post for such a long time.

    Read the GQ article. Not one TV show or article I’ve read tells the whole truth about what Phil said. They picked out their ‘talking points’ and jumped on their high horse in attack mode. They didn’t mention the part of the interview where he talked about loving everybody, no matter what, or the part where it’s not up to us to judge, which he didn’t do. If you feel quoting / paraphrasing the Bible is judging, maybe reading the Bible can help you understand the reason His Word is the ultimate word…not ours. If we never tell anyone the Truth and they never hear the Truth, how will they ever Know the truth? But I get it. I once didn’t want to hear or know. Do you feel angry because I voiced my opinion and you disagree? Do you feel ‘tolerant’ right now? I’d just like some Honesty in this world for a change.
